starting your day with us. >> we start with the shocking revelation from the now former cia director, general david petraeus. petraeus resigned from his post citing an extramarital affair. he had met personally with the president thursday to offer his resignation. the president reluctantly accepted friday. the general's affair was actually uncovered during an investigation by the fbi. the fbi's involvement has raised questions with at least one former cia operative. >> i'm not going to, but there are four or five cia directors that i know were carrying on extramarital affairs while they were director. the fbi was never brought in. the office of security was never brought in. it was ignored. it went away quietly. we'll never know about them. so this is absolutely extraordinary. i'm telling you it's more to do than with sex. there's something going on here which i can't explain and i think we're going to find out very soon. >> petraeus took over as cia chief after a long career in the army, most recently as the man leading operations in afghanistan. the cia will be run by michael morre

like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while reducing our deficit by $4 trillion over the next decade. i want to be clear, i'm not weded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but, i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. i'm not going to ask students and seniors and middle class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren't asked to pay a dime more in taxes. i'm not going to do that. and i just want to point out, this was a central question during the election. it was debated over and over again, and on tuesday night we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. and that includes democrats, independents and a lot of republicans across the country, as well as independent economists and budget sperpts. that's how you reduce the deficit. with a balanced approach. so our job now is to get a majority in congress to reflect the will of the american people. and i believe

, ali, this was a problem of our own making. if we're not careful, this will throw us into recession. that's the last thing we need. the president can take a leadership role like stephen said, they'll find compromise. i'm not sure they should exclude the top income. i think everybody should contribute to the solution. they will find a mini barringian. then we have to pivot to really bigger issues that are key to this economy growing over time and getting fiscal sustainability over time. >> david, in the simplest terms, the fiscal cliff means $7 trillion. a combination of things expiring, taxes going up. over the course of a decade. i want to be serious about had without being fear mongering. it is serious. that might sound like a dream scenario to a deficit hawk like you. wow, we're going to get rid of $7 trillion over ten years. why don't you love this idea of going over the fiscal cliff? >> we must not go over the fiscal cliff. it would cause us to go back into recession, exacerbate our unemployment and underemployment numbers, undercut confidence in government and potentially unde

any abuse or problem with use of government e-mails. >> right. i think the situation as we ascertained from everything this evening, the fbi was clearly investigating general petraeus. how that started has not been clearly found. what we then know happened is they had this information presumably for quite some time. for me one of the key questions is when did the white house get ahold of this information, and did they make a conscious decision for this not to be released to the media until after the election. i'll turn to barbara starr, if i may. >> piers, i think this is the key question in front of everybody. how extraordinary would it be that you have this type of fbi investigation into the cia director and the president is not informed about it? this seems to really beg disbelief at the moment. the word is circulating that the president was not aware, that only once petraeus came to him, but it really seems to beg belief that someone in the white house didn't know that the fbi didn't inform the white house in some fashion. and the other question is, of course, capitol h
